Chapter Thirty-Three

Blackie

Lacey took Jack to the cafeteria like Pipe had suggested and once they were out of my sight, it was my turn to drop to my knees. Only instead of turning to another person for help, I was forced to rely on a higher power. Tearing my hands away from my face, I lifted my red-rimmed eyes to the heavens and summoned God. An odd occurrence for a man who always turned to hell when things got rough. I guess different times call for different measures.

The scene from the other night played vividly in my mind and all I heard was Lacey’s voice, begging me to choose her and the baby. I wanted to be that guy—God as my witness, there is nothing I wanted more than to be exactly what they both needed. But I wasn’t lying when I told her I don’t know how to erase everything I know and become something else.

I waited for God to guide me, to fucking send me some sort of sign—but the man upstairs left me hanging. I suppose I deserved that. After all, there’s gotta come a time in a man’s life when he stops looking for a way out or someone to hold his hand. A time when he figures shit out for himself.

Pulling myself together, I made my way to the cafeteria along with the rest of the club. There, Jack continued to rant, swearing on everything holy that Javier was the one behind Reina’s accident. In not so many words he declared war on the cartel—something Wolf didn’t support. Without the support of his club, Jack would be committing suicide and I’m not sure anyone else realized that.

He also expressed his concern for Danny and asked that Lacey and I have papers drawn up, appointing us as his legal guardians if something should happen to him. It was a lot of shit to take in and I think it’s safe to say we were all relieved when the doctors came in and interrupted him.

The doctors informed us that Reina had made it through surgery, but her injuries were extensive, and she had coded on the table. He went on to tell us that she was in a coma and the next forty-eight hours were critical. Jack insisted on seeing her and they took him to the intensive care unit. None of us were allowed in there with him and yet, nobody could bring themselves to leave.

But when Bianci called, I had no choice but to excuse myself.

“You want the good news or the bad news?”

These days it was all the same, so I didn’t even bother answering him. His good news was that he had gotten a hold of Schwartz and they were on their way to meet me at the hospital. The bad news was that they spotted Ritzer at the courthouse, filing an emergency motion and requesting a warrant for my arrest.

When they finally arrived at the hospital, they had Grace Pastore with them. I didn’t ask why she was there.
